Well, that’s the White Village completed and I like the end result. I also like that I now have cross stitch out of my system and I won’t need to do any more in the foreseeable future!
For my next venture I’m thinking of making a book along the lines of those I saw at the Stroud Embroiderer’s Guild exhibition this week and today my copy of Under The Cover by Frances Pickering arrived this morning, just two days after ordering it. I’ve not made a mixed media type of book before and I’ve only had a quick skim through the book as yet but I’m sure it’ll be extremely useful. Unusually for a craft-type book, every page is photographs of book pages and covers made by Ms Pickering rather than being mainly text with accompanying photos and diagrams. That was a surprise, albeit a pleasant one. Neither are there instructions as such, just plenty of hints and suggestions hand-written over and around the images. A good variety of ideas to consider so I hope I don’t get bogged down in the preparation thought process and never get around to making a book!
